Chameleon (Calumma sp.):
Mossy noctuid moth (7 shot stack but missing a few slices):
As an adaptation to the rainforest environment, filled with mosses and lichens, the scales of this moth have grown in length. Of particular note are the "hair extensions" at the head and on the sides which trail down to the ground and serve to break up the outline and camouflage the moth while it is sleeping during the day.
This is a head on view where the scales completely hide the head.
Green and yellow tachinid:
Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a better angle of this fancy fellow before he took off.
Thanks for looking and commenting,
